Daniel Gillies Teases The Originals Finale - Exclusive by Alloy Entertainment

Alloy Entertainment

Ever since its inception as a Vampire Diaries backdoor pilot, The Originals has remained a story about the trials and tribulations of an immortal family trying to build a home in New Orleans. These Viking siblings — plagued by centuries of secrets, betrayals, and destructive power plays — have experienced more their fair share of pain, and their constant “bickering” makes the Battle of Hogwarts seem tame by comparison. But the beauty of their relationship is that, despite their personal transgressions and grievances, the Mikaelsons — adhering to their eternal promise of “Always and Forever” — let bygones be bygones in order to heal and move forth.

On that note, can they ever forgive Klaus for the damage and grief he inflicted upon them in episode 2×21, “Fire with Fire”? Not only did he kill Gia and attack Cami, but he also reactivated Hayley’s Crescent curse and basically pressured Rebekah into sacrificing her human body to return to her much more lethal one. True, his dastardly deeds were all part of a ruse to gain aunt Dahlia’s trust and protect his daughter, Baby Hope — but where does one draw the line? This is certainly the question Elijah will find himself struggling with in The Originals Season 2 finale. Hopeful for his brother’s redemption, Elijah has stood by Klaus’s side through thick and thin — even when he daggered him, even when he disagreed with his actions. Sometimes though, even honorable and loyal men need to break rank, and it seems Elijah has reached his boiling point.

Essentially he’s a prime example of a modern Renaissance man.

Well, while visiting the set of The Vampire Diaries spin-off, we also learned one more fun fact about Daniel: he’s as sassy as he is charming! In the age of media-trained entertainers, it’s quite refreshing to interact with an actor who keeps it real, and Daniel’s responses to questions about Elijah, Klaus, and the baby certainly had us cracking up.   That’s not to say, of course, that when we asked him some serious questions about his character, that Daniel handled them in a frivolous manner. Quite the opposite! Instead, he made interesting observations about recurring themes of betrayal and cyclical abuse that seem to run rampant in the Mikaelson family.
